I saw your post on Mary Cassatt too - she truly is one of the world's greatest impressionist artists. I wasn't happy with the google logo version though. The sentiment to recognize her is good but, google mucked up her style with cartoony brush strokes that leave people new to her genius the wrong "impression" :o) I did like the Mondrian google logo awhile back.
My digg, "Google logo diminishes Mary Cassatt May 22, 2009" links to their version and one of my own:
If you have time, let me know what you think.
